Any fall projects in the works?

The slow shift in the weather has sparked my desire to take on some fall crafting projects, as fall usually does to me. I enjoy crocheting. I've not been one to venture into wearables, mainly because I stink at guage. But I've done afghans, headbands, hair accessories, and such (goodness, my girls got a handful of compliments on their retro-styled crochet "worm" hair ties [HERE] when we visited a local amusement park several weeks ago.)

One wearable that I have attempted is a pair of Mary Jane slippers. Oh for sweet! They came out sooo cute and I wear them all the time in cooler weather. I've wanted to make a pair for my girls too, but there's that little problem of the stinking guage. I've attempted three times now to get it right, only to have a dainty slipper that would fit an NBA center or a 3 year old (neither whom I was intending to crochet for.)

But I'm not giving up. The Maryjanes are just waaaay to cute to throw in the crochet hook towel. So, I hope to start again this week, attempting to make Maryjanes for all us girls.

Is there a fall crafting project in the works for you? Do tell.
And do you crochet? If so, might want to give this pattern a little look-see.

  1. I don't crochet, but I really wish I did. I like to sew, but sometimes it's a real hassle to get it all out and then put it away again at dinnertime. I'd like to try a few quilt squares this winter...we'll see.

    Would love to see pictures of some of your crochet work! :0)

    Blessings!

  2. I don't crochet, but would love to see those slippers you did.
    I am planning on doing some fall decorating around here next week.

  3. Those slipppers sound absolutely adorable! I don't crochet either. I've done some sewing, but I haven't really given it must time as a hobby.
